Coach Frederick Aura said, “Our guys played tough tonight, but Santa Clara hit over 50% of their shots and just kept us on our heels in the latter stages of the game. The travel the past three weeks has been brutal. I hope to never again see a schedule like we’ve endured to start our season this year.”
